How to Make Easy Teddy Bear Cupcakes

What is a teddy bear?

A teddy bear is a stuffed toy in the form of a bear. They are typically soft and huggable, making them a popular choice for children and adults alike. Teddy bears are usually named after President Theodore Roosevelt, who was commonly known as “Teddy.”

Where did teddy bears come from?

The first teddy bear was created in 1903 by American toy company, Morris Michtom. Michtom was inspired to create the stuffed animal after seeing a newspaper cartoon that featured President Theodore Roosevelt refusing to shoot a captured bear during a hunting trip. The toy company received permission from Roosevelt to use his name and likeness for their new product. And thus, the teddy bear was born!

Teddy bears have been popular toys for children ever since. They are often given as gifts for special occasions such as birthdays and holidays. And what could be more perfect than giving a teddy bear cupcake to someone you love?

What is the most popular teddy bear?

The most popular teddy bear is the Steiff teddy bear. Steiff is a German company that has been making high-quality stuffed animals since 1880. Their bears are well-known for their “button in ear” tag, which is a trademark of the brand.

Preheat the oven to 350°F and place the shelf in the middle of the oven. Line the muffin tin with cupcake liners.

Bake in the oven for about 21 minutes then pull out and place on the side to cool

Let them cool completely.

Frosting Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 C powder sugar
  • 1/2 C Hershey cocoa powder 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp heavy whipping cream 
  • 1 piping bag fitted with a star tip

How to make Teddy Bear Frosting

Using a standing mixer, combine the butter, powder sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and heavy whipping cream and mix until combined and until stiff and creamy.

Pro tip: If the frosting, is still tough and powdery, add in 1-2 TBSP heavy whipped cream to make it smoother.

Frosting Your Teddy Bear Cupcakes

Place the piping bag into a large glass and fold the sides of the bag over the rim of the glass. Scoop the vanilla frosting into the piping bag. Bring the pastry bag edges up and twist them together to start decorating.

Add a 1 mm star tip to your bag.

If you don’t have a piping bag, try a plastic bag with the tip snipped off. Frost the cooled and filled cupcakes.

How to decorate your Teddy Bear cupcakes

You will need:

  • 1 box of whoppers chocolate candy 
  • 1 bag of chocolate melting wafers
  • 1 bag of caramel squares candy, unwrapped
  • 1 package of small edible eyes
  • mini circle cookie cutter

Take your cooled cupcakes and pipe all around the cupcake, making it look like a fuzzy bear texture. I find it is easier to move the star tip around the cupcake and push out frosting as I pull up on the pastry bag.

Take two chocolate melting wafers and place them on the top corner for the ears.

Take one caramel square and use your fingers to kind of play with it to get it soft.

Place it onto a cutting board or plate and flatten it out using either the bottom of a glass cup or a rolling pin.

Take the mini circle cookie cutter and cut out the mouth part of the bear.
